AMG Expands Distribution Capabilities In Europe With Swiss Office Opening And New Hires

Affiliated Managers Group, Inc. (NYSE: AMG), a global asset management company, today enhanced its European distribution capabilities by establishing an office in Zurich, Switzerland.

The Company also announced two new appointments to its distribution team in Europe. Patrick Sege joins as Director, Head of Distribution, Switzerland, Austria and Liechtenstein, and will be based in AMG’s new office in Zurich. Dr. Sege joins AMG from Liongate Capital Management, where he was Head of Sales and Business Development for Switzerland and Continental Europe. In this role, he was responsible for covering all institutional client segments including banks, pension funds, insurance companies, family offices and independent asset managers. Prior to joining Liongate Capital Management, Dr. Sege worked at UBS and Ernst & Young. He has an M.A. in Economics and a Ph.D. from the University of St. Gallen.

Axel Weiss joins AMG as Director, Head of Distribution, Germany, and will be based in the new Swiss office. Dr. Weiss was formerly Director of Sales and Relationships, Institutional Clients at Fidelity Investment Management, where he helped to build the firm’s institutional business. Dr. Weiss previously worked for Universal Investment, Cominvest Asset Management and Arthur Andersen. Dr. Weiss has a Diplom-Kaufmann and a Ph.D. from the University of Bayreuth and also is a Chartered European Financial Analyst.

“Establishing an office in Zurich, one of the most important financial centers in Europe and home to some of the world’s largest and most sophisticated investors, will extend the reach of our global distribution platform and further support our Affiliates in their sales and marketing efforts,” said Andrew Dyson, AMG’s Executive Vice President and Head of Global Distribution. “The appointments of Patrick Sege and Axel Weiss to the distribution team will significantly add to our expertise in Europe and enhance the AMG brand in the region. Their impressive professional track records and strong networks of local relationships make them ideally suited to help expand our footprint in Europe.”
